It was one of those games that we all expected the Flames to win. Although it wasn’t pretty, the Avs carried the play for a good chunk of this game as well as hit a few posts and missed a few open nets, Calgary was able to come through on top.
The whole notion of ‘in control of one’s destiny’ when it comes to making the playoffs really comes down to one simple action. You have to beat the teams below you in the standings. That’s it. If you do that you make it. For every team that you lose to that is worse than you, you then have to beat a team that’s better than you.
There are only 9 games remaining. I am still in the camp that the Flames are not going to make the playoffs. Which may sound negative, but I’d rather expect the worst and hope for the best. If Calgary does not make it it’s going to be heartbreaking, even though they had no business being in the position they are in when the season first began.
If the Flames do make it, then look out. It’s going to be a hell of a first round.
